A nationwide programme of roadshows and webinars has been launched by the RHA to prepare haulage companies for a no-deal Brexit.

Starting on 7 October, the trade association will host 66 seminars across 22 locations which will examine the impact on border management and the movement of goods in the event of the UK leaving the European Union without a deal.

These events are also intended to explain how it will impact upon traders, importers and exporters, as well as hauliers and drivers.

The seminars will explore the protocols and rules that will need to be followed and prepare businesses with checklists and details of where to find further guidance.

The RHA said it had been awarded “the highest proportion” of a £10m government grant to help prepare companies for a no-deal: “We are working hard to complement the work that government has already started – and throughout October we will be co-ordinating our very own campaign - AtoBrexit - in partnership with the DfT,” said Richard Burnett, RHA chief executive.

The roadshows will each have the capacity to brief a minimum of 150 people.
